For TJ Pusey, a commitment to York is a commitment to progress. “I committed to York because it was the best fit for me. The program is getting better and better every year and I wanted to be a part of it,” he said.

“The coaching staff at York are good people as well as good coaches,” he added. “When I went on my visit there, they talked to me as a person and not only just a football player. Personally, for me, a good relationship with your coaches is very important.”

Pusey, who is 6’3, 280lbs, is interested in studying sociology.

Hailing from Barrie, Ontario, Pusey has been playing football for only two years. In that time, he has suited up for the St. Joan of Arc Knights (GBSAA) and the Huronia Stallions (OFC). He helped his team capture a GBSAA championship in November against Barrie North Collegiate. He was also a co-defensive lineman of the year award winner.

Gavin Wallin has also played with the Huronia Stallions. The 5’11, 220lbs defensive end and outside linebacker was the Varsity Stallions’ 2018 rookie of the year. He calls Barrie home.
